Like Carol, I can only answer for myself....I had a full-time job plus a part-time job, then I let go of the part-time job, now my full-time job has been scaled down to part-time (from 40 hours to 24 hours). Next step is to stop working altogether, I guess.
I just can't keep going....it's all too much for me. Carol, I totally relate to what you go through. Just taking a shower EXHAUSTS me; I want to lie down and take a nap afterwards.
Stress of any kind can cause my lupus to flare.
